breakaway cos of a seven kosovan serbs have been injured in the speech of border crossing in an exchange of fire between protesters and nato peacekeepers. start the seven hundred seventy it's one of the world's leading experts on u.s. foreign policy walter russell mead explains to us the way the land lies for america's global future. walter russell mead thank you very much for being with us today sir good to be here it's a pleasure how you call this twenty first century the route this roller coaster ride in history. i wonder what spills and thrills to expect before the ride is done well when you look at the way the internet is already changing everyone's lives you
look at how migration is sending people all over the world you look at how the world economy since two thousand has just been up and down and up and down this is much more thrilling than life use to be i was you know i came to this part of the world for the first time back in the one nine hundred eighty s. and very little it happened politically for a very long time i think in some ways the unfreezing in russia began unfreezing in other parts of the world we're seeing it today in the arab spring not necessarily for better not necessarily for worse but for a more interesting how do you make of the violence that there is right now in the world has it always been that way and it just causes that weren't aware or has it got to really look worse well it you know it kind of ebbs and flows in the world i mean you think about china in the one nine hundred fifty s. russia in the one nine hundred thirty s. you think about germany of course in the thirty's and forty's so there's been times
when the pace of death was faster than it is now but also times when it was slower . you look at the war in the congo and people say as many as two million people have been killed in a series of civil and international conflicts in the congo in the last and i'm afraid that as we have more technology. we don't become better we simply become more able to do things both good and bad that is technology doesn't change who we are as human beings but it turns up the volume so that we are able to express whatever is in us good or bad more fully so you think it brings the good as good out of us as much as the bad as the bad we're all the same as before we are just louder. you believe that china is in the prior revolutionary state i wonder why does it have anything to do with decide that it's getting older faster than it's getting richer well that's
a problem for china you know pre-revolutionary i don't think i've ever used quite that word but what i see is that the chinese government isn't stream really competent i have nothing but admiration for their ability to manage a growing economy and so on and certainly you look at thousands of years of chinese history in many ways this government has to live or more for more people but any other but at the same time every success they have at fostering more growth more development means they have a more complex society which then becomes harder to to manage especially when it comes from the top down corruption becomes more of a problem and i think the chinese financial system is. is in a much shakier state than might appears for a very long time the economy has been growing at ten percent a year. it's hard to lose money as a bank when the economy is growing that quickly so i think there might be
a lot of stupid loans and many corrupt local officials their brother in law is getting money for something and so should something happen to knock off that very rapid path of growth we might very very quickly see that there are many more many more problems than that now looks like they have settled by case of the chinese revolution look like. i left my crystal ball us home. but i think what you would have is is more than a billion people all trying to live their lives in their own way and i think you have a lot of confusion you look at. chinese history and certainly before one thousand nine hundred forty nine you had a very long period of chaos and disorder before an order was formed it might take china a while but that's speculative so i know that here and i've heard democrats who
voted for obama house it disappointed you in some ways yes in some ways and. i have to say when i voted for him i didn't think oh this is the one everything is going to be perfect i thought that he would be able to manage our front on policy. effectively not perfectly no one and i think he has. i think we're in fairly good shape and he's been able to do some of the things that the bush administration tried to do but without all the the trouble and aggravation and some ways which is good the mess stickley i think he made some mistakes at the beginning he he thought that the country had elected him to transform the country i think he was actually look to be more like bill clinton and try to keep everything nice and so he's gotten out because he tried to do too much
and do some things people didn't expect or want he's now on the defensive and this is a difficult time for him what do you think shapes the valleys parmesan ministration lot of things i think he's very much a product of the kind of ivy league educational system. he sees himself i think is part of a new kind of america almost the millennial generation in some ways looking to build a post racial society i think he does he's he's not as much on the left as some people have thought a yes i don't i don't think that's right i think he i would consider more a kind of a. in the in the mold of people like mcgeorge bundy the sort of great harvard's technocrats of the one nine hundred sixty s. and seventy's i think is where he is pissing is going to get reelected that's very hard to say i know that you've described the united states e.u.
and japan as financially responsible superpowers so i was wondering how do you think the world can afford to be led by responsible super powers well of course there are a lot of financially irresponsible non super powers too i think financially they're not superpowers right but what i guess what i'm saying is who else can it be led by i was going to second question that if united states actually loses their leadership who would it be to well that's partly why i think it may be less likely that the us will lose and in some ways the dollar as a reserve currency it's the chinese are not going to internationalize theirs for a while the euro is is not really an alternative to the dollar so what is it the swiss franc the south african rand ok but do you still get a sense that the superpowers are losing says the per prince and it inflationary lot . i think that the american economy is in
a period of deep restructuring if you look at the last three hundred fifty years of sort of the rise of global capitalism you'd argue that the british and the americans have we've had many financial crises ever since the south siebold in the dutch tulip bubble even and some noise and when there's a financial crisis an economic crisis some countries seem to be faster to innovate and some countries say we knew capitalism was a terrible system all along we're going to have nothing to do with it so the argentina's thems and some others try to get away from it and then when the time comes for the next wave of grow. they've isolated themselves i think the british and the americans and are still prepared to try something new my guess is that the whole world has reached a stage where the old system economic system doesn't work we don't know how to make
the transition to the new reform wondering around trying to invent i think americans are going to get there faster than some others so let me just recap because there's been a lot of talk with the past three years about the world becoming law type collar. and european things are going to stay that way they are the world order for a while well i guess what i would say is the whole the goal of american foreign policy is not actually a uni polar world i think people. think that the united states actually is more a grettir garbo and that is we would like to be left alone for example the european union from the united states point of view is the perfect solution the europeans aren't going to war with each other they aren't going to war with us they're pretty prosperous they like a lot of the things we do so the europe if it be nice it's had a dream for europe that would be it it's ok now we have much less
power in europe than we did in one thousand nine hundred five when we could decide who ate what's ok but you have much more power in other parts of the world right but again what we want to say is we would like every place to more or less be like your happy rich at peace so that you can be left alone so right so that the world would be the way we want it to be but we wouldn't have to make it perform that's the american goal and so in that sense. i'm old and i polar world in which most or all of the polls kind of like the american way without us to make an. more like it and you see that's the goal and to some degree the emergence of in the the emergence of europe the fact that brazil was growing into just that kind of power suggests that that we're getting that what americans would
consider a non multi-polar really rather than say the one nine hundred forty s. when you have the soviet union sure many enter panned out all eight that system and are trying to destroy what america like russia. would like to see russia happy free democratic and secure thank you very much. thank you. twenty years ago largest country. sixty six of the. city. was how did. you get to. where did it take. the. discovery.
